Moto Morini 9 1/2 S SPORT
Oberdan Bezzi is an italian industrial designer specialized in mortorbikes design. He is a proffesional, although in this free time he also creates design proposals that he publish in his blog Motosketches. It caught my attention the constant way in which Bezzi works, because he publish at least one sketch every month.

When late last year Moto Morini presented the 2014 models many Morini-fans had enough: the new models were a disappointment, the prices were substantially increased (€ 3,500 for the Corsaro 1200) and although claimed by the new owners from Moto Morini there were still no structural updates.
What do you do when you don't have too much faith in the management, but are still attached to the brand?
A group fanatical Moto Morini fans from Germany decided to take matters in their own hands and entirely in-house to start developing a new Moto Morini following the Oberdan Bezzi design.

Within a week there signed up more than 60 virtual shareholders on the German forum, who paid their share within a few days.
On the forum was a project team, led by Ducati tuning specialist Axel Ickert to the new project, the 9 1/2 sBezziale that is a homage to the old Moto Morini 3 1/2, as he was remembered in 2006 by the Italian designer Oberdan Bezzi.
The project is to follow through their WEBSITE, they hope to be able to reveal the sBezziale this year.

The Moto Morini 3 1/2 from 1973 - 344 cc - 35 HP

Moto Morini 9 1/2 2014? - 1187 cc - 117 HP

So how cool is that!
The factory will not listen to the clients demands or wishes.
So you start building the bike you want yourself with a group of enthusiast who will sponsor the bike.
Not with money but with parts, knowledge, time or just good ideas.
